    This is Finn, an Australian cattle dog who wants to be the next mayor of St. John's, Newfoundland. And honestly, we should probably just let it happen.

    Five-year-old Finn is already a star, having had TV appearances including Republic of Doyle, CTV reports.

    Finn's dad told CTV that the candidate is a hard worker, a good buddy, and believes in reliable snow clearing. What more could you want, really?

    Just look how comfortable he is dealing with the press.
